Well, a lot has happened in the time I have been gone from the blog. (I have been working a lot of nights recently, which explains a lot.)
As a result I have pretty much missed the big David Letterman-Sarah Palin brouhaha.
He was making a joke about one of Palin's daughters being knocked up by Alex Rodriguez, and I guess he thought he was making jokes aimed at A-Rod or at Palin's 18-year-old daughter who had been pregnant before. It turned out it was the 14-year-old who was at the Yankees game, though, and people thought the joke was about her!
Just the other day, a few protesters held a big "Fire David Letterman" rally outside the Ed Sullivan Theater, and not surprisingly, it was all a bunch of conservatives doing the protesting. The usual humorless political crowd yet again, doing the usual thing they do. It doesn't seem to matter whether they're conservative or liberal, these people always take life too seriously and they always call for boycotts or for people to be fired.
I gotta say, I can't go along with this. Letterman made a bad joke, people, and it backfired on him. But that is what comedians do, they try and tell jokes! Take life a little less seriously, that's all I gotta say. If he's fired, it's the fans who end up being the people who lose in the end.
Talk about bad luck for Letterman. He finally starts winning in the ratings in late night, and this mess happens. That's it for now.
